Book Description:
Pain is an emotion experienced in the brain, it is not like touch, taste, sight, smell or hearing. It is categorized into Acute Pain less than twelve weeks duration and Chronic Pain of more than twelve weeks. Pain can be perceived as a warning of potential damage, but can also be present when no actual harm is being done to the body. This new book examines new research into the causes, symptoms and treatments of pain.
